Brakes and Rotors
Are the rotors and brakes on ebay worth the little money that they cost or are the just cheapies? I desperately need rotors and pads and dont want regular rotors, want drilled and sloted or just drilled.

I have slotted/drilled rotors from r1concepts on ebay on both my cars and my buddy runs them on his vette and my brother on his gto. qwkgto bought some for his gto too a couple of weeks ago. That's 5 sets and not a single issue with any of them. In my mind they're definitely worth it. I'm not sure about the other companies.....I've only ordered from r1concepts.
I bought all 4 rotors for my bird for less than $200 shipped.... I believe it was like $160 or something like that. For that kinda money I had to give them a try. Glad I did.

good customer service and if you call them you can sometimes get a break on shipping.

i got mine from the ws6 store for 167.00 for all 4 drilled and slotted i have had them on for 2 years and no probs....i went with the autozone ceramic pads too

does the ws6 store say who supplies those? I'm sure they're all chinese made and probably all made by the same company. I do notice that the drill/slot patterns are different so I wonder if these companies buy blanks and then do the drilling and slotting themselves.

Ok stupid auestion probley, can u have them turned if you need, or do you ever need to turn them? I seen them on ebay buy now for 140 -160 or all four front and back, without pads.

I don't see why you couldn't have them turned. I never turn rotors these days. I know a lot turn them even brand new and it's probably not a bad habit to have. I just don't have issues not turning them and until I do I'll just keep doing what I've been doing.

cool, thanks for the info. I do have another question about something different. I was cleaning my MAF and on my hood I noticed some screw holes where obviously there was something there at one time it lines up where the ram air scoop on the hood and the ram air box on the motor. Is there a boot or seal that is on the hood that is missing?

I think you'll be satisfied with them. Update the thread if you would when you get them and get them installed. That way we'll have a record of people that run these and see if anyone has issues with them.

Are you guys painting the hats on these rotors? if not how are they holding up? I'm afraid to run cheap rotors because i don't want them to rust and look like crap. My buddy runs the Bear Decela rotors and they seem to be holding up nice with no paint.

Just put R1's on last weekend with the posi-quiet ceramic pads all around....$205 for everything shipped to my door in three days.
I like how they taper the slots for stress relief....most other companies don't do that
